[Python-Dev] How to install tile (or any other tcl module)

I've been trying to get Tile to work with python.
It can make your tkinter apps look like
See http://tktable.sourceforge.net/tile/

Under linux I built tile from source, installed and it just works.

import Tkinter
root = Tkinter.Tk()
root.tk.call('package', 'require', 'tile')
root.tk.call('namespace', 'import', '-force', 'ttk::*')
root.tk.call('tile::setTheme', 'alt')
### Widgets are now pretty!

Under win32, I installed the binary package into python/tcl
(i.e. python/tcl/tile0.5) with all the other tcl packages, but tcl
can't find it. Any ideas?

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Script1.py", line 5, in ?
    root.tk.call('package', 'require', 'tile')
_tkinter.TclError: can't find package tile
